Goodreads Synopsis:


A martini glass of sizzling romance, a jigger of suspense and crime, perfectly shaken with a twist of wacky humor.

Where would you draw the line between love and trust?

When Colin’s feisty great grandma Helga mysteriously disappears, Natalie and the gun-toting Svetlana rush to the rescue. With the help of Russian mafia goons and Natalie’s girlfriends, they get more than they bargained for. Natalie invites trouble into her life all over again. She could find herself questioned by the police, or worse, her relationship with Colin could become rickety once more.

And so the race begins: with grandma Helga on the loose, Colin turns to the police for help, and Natalie is a stiletto heel tip outside of the law. But being in the wrong has never felt so vindicated.

***The books in the Almost Bad Boys series should be read in order. They are not stand-alone books:

Over the last couple of weeks I have reviewed Almost Matched and Almost Broken Upthe first two books in the Almost Bad Boys series. Today, I’m back to review the third and final book in the series: Almost Too Far.

In Almost Too Far, Natalie and Colin are back and working through some trust issues. Natalie worries that Colin will never really trust her, that she’ll be made to pay for the loss of his ex-girlfriend. Natalie gets the chance to prove herself worthy of his trust when Colin’s great-grandma Helga goes missing. All Natalie has to do is stay put at her house with his grandma Libby, while Colin and the police search for details.

What seems like an easy task soon becomes hard when Natalie comes across some clues to Helga’s disappearance. Rather than wait for help, she calls her friends. With help from Svetlana and her mafia men, Natalie sets out to find Helga. Natalie hopes that finding Helga will help win Colin’s trust.

Almost Too Far was a fun, wild ride. It wasn’t quite as crazy as Almost Broken Up, but it was still exciting to read. I continued to love Natalie and all of her friends. I swear, this series should be called Almost Bad Girls instead of Boys. The girls’ insane antics made me laugh. I especially liked Svetlana. I could see her having her own series with her Russian mafia goons.

Natalie and her friends weren’t the only funny characters in the story, though. Colin’s grandmothers and their friends added some silliness to the story. Their hilarious conversations are exactly what I expect mine will be like with my friends when I’m their age. They were very good at getting in trouble.

Since the majority of this book focused on Natalie and her friends, I was worried I wouldn’t get to see much of Colin and Natalie’s relationship. I didn’t need to worry, though.  There were plenty of  steamy and sweet relationship moments between Colin and Natalie. They were so cute together!

Almost Too Far was a great ending to the Almost Bad Boys series. If you’re a reader who enjoy a lot of friendly mischief and sexy moments, I would definitely recommend this romance series.
